    1. I’m surprised by how much I liked this. Nostalgia! Originally published in 1962, when I was 8 or 9 and living in San Francisco, this really reminded me of the San Francisco from decades ago. It reminded me that I was not allowed to ride standing on the outside of the cable cars when I was a child; I’d forgotten that. Until I saw that some information was updated in 2003, I was going to recommend this book only to those who had lived or visited San Francisco in or around 1962, but because of [...]

    2. This is really a travelogue for young readers. Good illustrations, easy story. This book was originally written in the 60's but, it has updated information in the back of the book for more update facts.

    3. Another fun one in this series! I have enjoyed each and every one of them! Lost of good facts, history! Fun picture! Just an all around good time!!

    4. Beautifully illustrated and captures a whimsy of the city. Reading as an adult with more in-depth knowledge of the sites, places and attractions mentioned, I felt a warm nostalgia feeling of love for the city and brings back fond memories of the experiences had at the various areas talked about. Great book for any reader at any age; whether a tourist, resident, or lover of SF. Definitely want to share with the children in my life and a great addition to any ones book collection. Also makes a gre [...]

    5. This is a really love one of the This is. . . series. It seems like Sasek had a real love for San Francisco that I haven't really seen in the few other books of the series I've read. It's not always the most interesting, but the illustrations are really, really nice. Recommended!(My used copy has written in it: Cameron Bray. Go here all the time and have a great time. I did! Frank.)

    6. Beautiful travel book for kids. While it's an account of SF in the 60's, many of the locations can still be seen today. Annotations update readers as to changes in the city. Gorgeous mid-century modern illustrations that will appeal to locals, fans of art from that period, and well-traveled little ones alike.

    7. I have loved this series of books about cities ever since I was a little kid. They are all so good, and each book captures the individual spirit of the place so well.The playfulness of his line, the personalities of the people he draws, the movement and energy in his vehicles

    8. Great travel book. Love getting a tour of the highlights of the city and what the different districts are like. Really like this style of art too.

    9. Good art. Euro perspective. A bit out of date, but who cares. Trying to teach Izzy the bridges (GG/Bay)

    10. I love this classic book! Gorgeous illustrations accompany interesting information about the city by the bay.

    11. Besides enjoying the great illustrations, I learned a few things. For one, I always assumed Yerba Buena was a pot reference, but now I know it was San Francisco's original name :)

    12. Really great book. It's the original 60s illustrations & text with little footnotes about what has changed since then. Amazing illustrations.

    13. I like the idea of this book, but I'm a bit iffy on its execution. I'm curious about his This is London - would I like it more? I'm also wondering if he wrote one about his native Prague, which fits into the "most beautiful cities" category along with those first two.I like its sweet, simple history and affection for San Francisco's landmarks, including some that are out of date. Originally published in 1962, this book gained a few annotations in its 2003 re-publication, which leaves it still a [...]
